After reading that, I do feel sorry for Livewire. She was a interesting and cool villainess from the STAS. But eh her comic counterpart. bleh, it's iek they just said "screw it" and just jobbed her.
Reminds me of one of my favorite B level Superman villains aka Atomic Skull, Joesph Martin, the second one went down the jobber list as well. He went from being a cool mentally imbalanced character who can actual hurt Superman in fist fights to be "grr me monster" jobber character after Underworld Unleashed. I would have liked to seen him become a hero like what he claimed to do after Underworld Unleashed but nothing came from it neither. No reason why he became a thug.
